    My 91 civic sedan needs new shocks. So i figured i do all new lowering springs with shocks. I want to lower it a inch. I was wonder what would be a nice combo(lowering springs/ shocks) for around $300-$500. I like the back road turns but when i usually race its in a straight line. Thanks for your help

    Yea, i'm looking at the blue's right now and for $369 shipped that does not sounds bad at all. 1.25 drop in the front and 1 in the back. Does anyone have any other idea or there own combo that they had good luck with. By the end of the night i'm going to purchase something i just want to get my shit straight before i purchase a set.

    I'm not one for cheapo springs. My one friend bought cheap lowering springs on ebay and it didn't even lower his car. He ended up cutting the lowering springs he bought to lower it. If i can get name brand spring/shock package for a nice price then i'll feel safer.

    Other question. Do ef sedans look better with a 1 in. drop or a 1.5 in. drop? I found some tein spring with 1.5 in. drop and i could get the blues still for near the same price. I have 13 in. wheels now. I dont want to go to low just incase i get 15in. rims but that is no time soon.

    yea, i had a 88 sedan dropped to the erf on ebay coilovers back in my school days. It looked like the front was banged but the drive was terrible. I want form and confort with this setup and in the far far far future this might be getting a b16 swap. I guess i'll look up some pictures.
